  1. The author confronts the love/hate relationship many women have with the church and encourages the reader to walk deeply into that simultaneous hunger for God and disillusionment with their religious heritage. Particularly helpful are the authentic voices of women whom the author has met.

This book accomplishes what it sets out to do: accompany women on a journey toward their own faithful wisdom.
